3D-printed wheel parts for the Fun Scale Models P-38


P38 parts


In addition to the fantastic scale spinners, we’re proud to offer some very special accessories for the Fun Scale Models P-38!   Lightweight 3D-printed scale wheels!  We have scale black “diamond tread” rubber tires and scale mag wheel hubs!  Please see the “before and after” pictures below.

The airplane is not included!  This model is a masterpiece and these wheels and tires really help dress it up. 

The following pictures show original Derek’s prototype model WITHOUT the new custom 3D parts and WITH the new wheels and diamond-tread tires.


In addition to the special P38 wheels listed here, Rabid Models also offers custom-designed 3D-printed 3-blade spinners for the Fun Scale Models P-38 (click here) as well as the brushless motor and 3-blade propellers.



SCALE P38 DIAMOND-TREAD TIRES: black flexible TPU with tread detail. Main tire is 2″ diameter, 1/2″ wide, 5gms.  The nose tire is 1.5″ in diameter and about 0.3″ wide, 3.2gms. Adding the complete set with hubs will add about 1 ounce to your model – Two complete main wheels & hubs weighs 20gm and the nose wheel & hub is 5gm.

DETAILED MAG WHEEL HUBS: white PETG.  Main wheel mag hub is 1.25″ in diameter and the nose wheel hub is 0.92″.    Two hub halves make one wheel hub – glue onto the tire and carefully drill holes for your axle.  The hubs are not painted.  A smooth hub is available as well, if you don’t want the mag hubs.

NOTE: the P38 will require two sets of main tires & wheel hubs and one set of nose tire and wheel hubs.  These are available separately, or in sets.

3D-printed parts are unpainted but require very little preparation – they can be painted with any plastic-compatible paint.  Painting is recommended because all plastics will deteriorate over time if exposed to sunlight.  The two wheel hub halves are to be glued onto the tire with CA or Foam-Tac cement.  The two hubs have starter holes for the axle – carefully drill out the holes to match the axle wire size that you are using.
